“A little gem and great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Our party of 10 African business leaders had real problems with premier hotels and top rated B&B in Maseru for reservations, service etc. This guest house was everything my wife and I needed and at 35% of the hotel prices. Secure, very friendly, adequate breakfast. Need a GPS to find it first time. I travel internationally a lot and would highly recommend this for basic accommodation.

I travel on business and always need wifi. if you can ensure that there is strong wifi in rooms the better. when I checked in at night there was a security guard who could not understand English and found it difficult to communicate that we had reserved a room.

Thank you very much for staying with us and for constructive review. We take comments seriously and we took time to respond because we were hoping that we would have the solution to our wifi facility by now. We have worked very hard with the service provider to improve on the coverage in the rooms but I am sorry to report that we have just improved but the service is not really up to maximum level due to tecnhnical challenges as explained by the service provider. We have just engaged the new service provider at the new guesthouse so that we can compare the service and make informed decision about our way forward.

We have talked to the security company service provider to resolve our challenges with night people and the new arrangement is working.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again at Scenery.

Thank you

The staff is friendly and helpful and the rates are value for money. Check in is fast. The breakfast could be more innovative but for rates charged it's acceptable. I would certainly be back here. Thanks

Thank you very much for the positive review. It is very motivating to hear that we were able to offer you clean and friendly stay at Scenery. It is also encouraging to hear that our check in service is fast because time is one of the most valuable commodities and we are glad that we safed your time. We appreciate the need to improve breakfast and I sat down with my team to make some improvements and I can comfortably say that you will note some changes when you visit us next time.

I had a fantastic stay at your Guest House and am looking forward to staying with you guys again on my next visit to Lesotho.

You are also located at a very convinient place that is close to town which makes it a plus for you.

NB: it would only be nice to charge per room though not per person. Rather have additional charge for things like breakfast. unless if there is really a logical reason for doing that,that I might not be aware of.

Regards,
Tshepo

Hotel is in near the stadium in walking distance to the minibus station (don’t walk with big luggage – taxis are cheap). The interior designer of the rooms took during his work there probably a time out from Kindergarten (for entering the balcony you had to push aside the bed) and there are some flaws in the rooms but the hotel seems to be not old so the furniture still looks good. The staff is remarkably helpful and polite and information to public transport given to me by them were reliable. Breakfast (included) was great and extra prepared for me since I was the only guest at the time. Room rates were 500 ZAR and seemed to be okay for Maseru even though on the countryside in Lesotho it’s getting cheaper.

Thank you so much for valuable comment and we are happy to hear that we have very nice staff and we went an extra mile when serving you breakfast. I am glad you raised an issue of interior design at this stage because we are currently working on the new Scenery that will hopefully start operations in June/July 2013. This issue will definitely be helpful in working on the new guesthouse and for adjustments to be made at the existing guesthouse. We aim to continually grow and develop our services and we are able to do so with support from you and all our guests. Hope to see you soon.

I stayed at Scenery Guesthouse for a week and had a wonderful experience. The staff was lovely, the rooms were nice and clean, the location was close to town but still peaceful, the food was good and the internet was pretty decent. I will be back for sure!

This guest house is great for a single traveler, couple, or maybe a small family. The area is very safe and we walked up and down the streets without ever feeling threatened. Scenery is very near the Lesotho Air Base (we never saw 1 airplane in 2 weeks) and the national football (soccer) stadium. Not many of the local had any idea when games were being played, so the team must not be much of a draw.

The rooms are nice, if not a little small. They were always kept very clean and the building itself is in good repair. Rooms upstairs tend to have air conditioning, while most downstairs rooms have fans. This is an important point in the summer months when the weather can get very warm. Also, only some rooms had refrigerators, so if this is important make sure they know upon making your reservation.

Breakfast in the morning is generally good and the options while limited tasted fresh and homemade. There is a kitchen available for guest to use during other meals, or additional meals can be provided by the hotel for an additional cost. Wireless internet is complimentary which is unheard of in Lesotho. Keep in mind that not all rooms get the wireless signal, so the closer your room is to the front desk the better the chances of picking up the signal.

The big selling points for this guesthouse are price and staff. The price is better then almost anywhere else in Maseru. They also take credit cards, which is uncommon for most guest houses in Maseru. The staff is absolutely fantastic. We never met one person who was not willing to jump in and help with anything and everything. We were always greeted with a big smile and treated like a member of the family. Our son (18 month old) was also kept entertained by nearly every staff member, whether through dancing, walking, running, eating, smiling, etc..

My only complaint is that there is not much to do right around the property, so if you have young children come prepared with activities for them. It costs approx 30 rand for a taxi into the main part of the city.
